i’ve been in aspen the last week, staying in my boyfriend’s childhood home – a log cabin built in the 60s, and then added to in the 70s, and again the 80s, so i’ve got mountain living on the mind (read: i want to get my hands on a major makeover).
first, let me say, that even here, with wifi on life-support and the real world sort of blanketed in steady snow, it’s hard to keep anything front of mind other than the monstrous clusterfuck our petulant, megalomaniac of a president is creating in the world; however, sharing pretty things and my penchant for aspirational living — a bit of levity as a brief respite from the heavy hotmess going on around us — is what keeps me grounded. so, let’s talk about this david netto project, and how it’s a beach house reno, but i think it would parlay perfectly into an alpine retreat.
i’m learning after having friends in and out of here the past week that second homes need to be simple. friendly, functional, and fun is the key. turnkey for showing up with a crew. i think this inspired hamptons cottage fits the bill in a big way.
